James Comey is the former director of the FBI who is disliked by Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump in equal measure. His decision to investigate Clinton’s personal email server during the 2016 presidential election is viewed by her supporters as a decisive factor in her losing the race to Donald Trump. But Trump is no fan of Comey either. In 2017 a seething President Trump summoned Comey to a meeting in the Oval Office where he pressured him to deny that Trump and his entourage were under investigation for collusion with Russia. Comey refused to give information to Trump and was fired from the FBI in May 2017.
On June 12 Comey comes to Intelligence Squared live at Union Chapel, for a lively conversation with satirist and screenwriter Armando Iannucci best known for writing 'The Thick of It' and 'Veep' to discuss crime, punishment and accountability at the highest end of politics.
